Being essentially a cinema obsessed nation, our primary problem with Tumhari Sulu will inevitably be its realism. It’s as authentic as our own lives. And thus, the casting of Vidya Balan as Sulu is as perfect as it could’ve been. Sulu is Vidya’s second nature, at least that is what as laymen we can gauge. She is vivacious, spunky and courageous in her own way. It could be seen as the film’s biggest folly but it is mostly an advantage that Suresh Triveni didn’t have to work much in making Sulu a concrete figure.
 
Vidya fares exceptionally as she exudes Sulu with her own layers, some of them visible to those who have had the good fortune of knowing her well. But Sulu is the kind of film that takes pride in showcasing the pits and falls of a
middle class life more than allowing its viewers to take a flight of luxury that leaves little to imagination. As a 30 something, serial contest winner, Sulu is probably your

over enthusiastic neighbour. For me she was the bechari, siblings ki maari girl. But for all of us, Sulu is relatable. A young woman taking flights of fantasy, wearing her cape and making it on her own are issues close to our hearts these days. It’s breezy, easy to watch especially with the right popcorn. For those who like it, Sulu could prove to be a comfort film watched on TV over and over again to make a mundane Sunday a brighter one.

Triveni and his writers have done a brilliant job on paper and the wonderful casting makes their job much easier. But his labour of love isn’t devoid of issues, some of them nearly fatal. There’s no denying that it’s a watchable and at times even a wonderful film. But the film’s pacing is awry. Added to it, Triveni seems to have a lack of clarity on what he wanted to position the movie as. For a comedy, the humour is sparse. For a slice of life, the soul is in short supply. And for a drama, there’s too much of sappiness. This is the kind of film that has probably gone wrong on the editing table. The pacing is disturbingly jerky. 
 
The entire first half is devoted to the predicament of a middle class housewife grappling with issues and coming to terms with the pressures of being a radio jockey. It was interesting to note how the writers subtly bring forth the issues of a respectable job for the desi middle class. The big tussle in the film happens precisely because Sulu’s family isn’t able to register the calls of her job. Only certain professions are considered good and the cagey mentality is depicted wonderfully in the movie. The songs especially are the story’s biggest high. It will be hard to get over Manva Pankh Laga for anyone who has dared to dream. But for a film that talks this much about one’s right to dream and love, it is skirmish to discuss so much more. There’s a possibility of a bonafide sequel here about gender disparity and how the fairer sex isn’t allowed the freedom of choice, more often than not. The spirited Vidya and her cutesy chemistry with Manav Kaul is one to watch out for but Sulu doesn’t entirely make your heart soar. So much more could have been done with this witty, sexy aunty but the forced inclusion troubles, which doesn’t quite fit the charming vulnerability off
it. Watch it just for Vidya, the woman who is OMG-so-damn-seksy and never hits a false note on screen

We rate it a 60% on our movie meter.
